Hang in there, Doc Rock!

Yay! 9:07am Corey:Good morning Bob and glisteners! 9:08am Joe Merklee:Morning, all. 9:09am WilliamfromDumont:I love this Barry Goldberg tune. 9:10am Bob Brainen:Good monring 1whoknewcthulhu, Deborah, Doc Rock, Adamdoesit, Jeff, WilliamfromDumont, Yes, Smokin' J & Frank in Queens, Corey, Joe M. Welcome all! 9:10am Dennis Diken:Hey Bob and everyone! Never heard that Tommy Flanders 45, cool! produced by Tom Wilson, I see. Has the feel of a mid-late 60s UK production 9:10am Jack:Bob! Last night I just started reading " Guitar king : Michael Bloomfield's life in the blues" 9:13am Bob Brainen:Yeah Dennis, Tom Wilson, hence the Zappa involvement.
That's a good book Jack.
9:14am Marc Francis:Howdy Bob. Howdy all. 9:15am melinda:morning folks! 9:16am Peter from Dover NJ:Good morning Bob and everyone. That Beach Boys cut. Amazing. 9:16am Yes:good morning. this mill valley track is happy 9:16am Yes:i want to go to a place called strawberry point 9:16am Jack:I've always felt that Bloomfield was (and is) underappreciated. Love the Electric Flag and Super Session tracks. 9:17am Jeff:Mill Valley! I loved that record when it came out, and I ain’t ashamed to admit it! 9:18am Dennis Diken:recently heard that the circular “who ran the iron horse” part of “Cabinessence” may have been inspired by the “didi-didi-didi-didi” bit of “Last Train To Clarksville”! 9:19am northguineahills:haven't heard this version of this Satie... 9:19am Leonardo:It's a gas, gas, gas to hear your radio show again Bob Brainen. 9:20am dano59:For Satie, this rocks! 9:20am WilliamfromDumont:Bob, do you have that Al Kooper single from '66 doing an instrumental of Phil Och's Changes? 9:20am Bob Brainen:Howdy Marc, Melinda, northguineahills & Leonardo!
Totally agree on Bloomfield, Jack. Plus those 1st 2 albums with Paul Butterfield. A-mazing.
Dennis, now ~that~ is a fun fact! Fun just to ponder it!
9:23am Marc Francis:I forgot about this record!!! 9:24am egould310:This weather! Foggy and cool here in Seattle. Bob Brainen in my ears. Perfect for a morning run. 9:24am northguineahills:Sunny and the first not hot day here in FL (still in the 70sF;20sC this morn.
Marina trench, east of the Phillipines, in the Pacific ocean.... (I think I heard this record around wfmu over a decade ago)>
9:27am northguineahills:Fairport! 9:28am Dennis Diken:Yeah, I heard that someone brought the newly-released Monkees 45 to the studio & Bri flipped out. I think the timeline works out? 9:28am Dennis Diken:LOVE this Fairport track! Thanks for playing!! 9:28am Bob Brainen:Hey dano59. hey egould310, northguineahills.
Wm. I do not recall it. Was it ever anthologized?
Food for thought DD.
9:31am Peter Tomlinson:Kooper's instrumental Changes 45 (also on Verve) is on YouTube (pretty eccentric arrangement!): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UZeMWkCZAso 9:33am johnk77:strawberry point just north
marin county, california
9:35am Yes:NRPS !? Hooray ! 9:35am WilliamfromDumont:I know Changes was reissued on a recent anthology. The "B" side not reissued. 9:39am WilliamfromDumont:There's a New Riders album called Before Time Began that contains sessions from '68/'69. Great stuff! 9:39am Bob Brainen:Thanks Pete! I'll check it out. Ah. yet another Verve 45!
Johnk77, sounds nice. Just places I've read about or know from record references.
9:43am wendy del formaggio:Good morning, Bob, and listeners.
I don’t think I’ve ever heard a Gerry Rafferty song I didn’t like. He’s so good.
9:44am mauri:Hey Frank! 9:56am Really Lisa:Hi Bob and all. Glad to have the app playing thru my car speakers. Long drive, paused to say thanks for the great sounds! 9:59am Bob Brainen:Hey wendy del formaggio, mauri, & Really Lisa. Appreciate it, have a good ride. 10:01am zzzacck:When the back announcing track came on, I almost thought that Tortoise song "I Set My Face to the Hillside" was about to start. 10:02am mauri:chicken wings in the oven and good music on the air! thanks bob! 10:04am Marc15:Thank You, Skeleton Ruth 10:05am listener marianne:It’s so nice to hear you again on Saturdays, Bob! You have been missed 10:06am adamdoesit:What a combo on that Dameron tune. 10:07am David in ATL from NJ:This is so trippy, Bob!
What a gem.
10:10am 1whoknewcthulhu:That's The Turtles' Nuggets track! 10:12am Bob Brainen:Hey zzzacck, I'll have to check that one out. I learn a lot of new / new to me things from the comments.
Thanks listener marianne, great to be here.
Yeah Adam, w/Damerson-you can't go wrong!
Hey David in ATL from NJ, it is trippy, which is sorta ironic. :
10:13am Dennis Diken:"Outside Chance" might be the first Turtles track helmed by the genius of drummer Johnny Barbata - who is originally from Clifton, NJ! 10:13am wendy del formaggio:@zzzacck: I have often had that same Tortoise-related thought when Bob starts that particular “music” bed. It’s a fun trick that keeps my internal jukebox strong. 10:13am Roberto:This has to be the least Warren-Zevon-sounding Warren Zevon track ever. 10:14am wendy del formaggio:Shout-out to Clifton, NJ! Some of my favorite relatives live/lived in that town. Valley Road! 10:16am wendy del formaggio:Bob: Tortoise’s first few albums, released mid-90s on Thrill Jockey, are really special. I recommend starting with either their s/t release, “Millions Now Living,” or “TNT.” I think you’d dig ‘em. 10:18am Matt Warwick:Missed you Bob! Me and my new puppy Bruce are listening in and lounging. 10:21am YETI BOB:@Wendy: One of my all-time favorite bands. To me, "It's All Around You" and "Beacons of Ancestorship" are equally good as the first 3. (And all the various members side projects are good too!) 10:21am wendy del formaggio:@Matt Warwick: A new puppy! Hooray! Details, please. Breed? Where’d ya get him? How fuzzy and snuggly is he? 10:22am YETI BOB:Ooops, forgot to mention "Standards" which is probably my favorite Tortoise album!!! I get shivers from the opening notes of Jeff Parker's guitar (who by the way just dropped a couple of great records) 10:22am Jasen:Warren Zevon does a nice version of Mutineer on the Letterman show. You can find it on youtube. I think it was his last appearance on the show. 10:24am YETI BOB:Photo of Bruce the Puppy here: www.wfmu.org... @Matt - any new pics? 10:24am Bob Brainen:Dennis, yes! 1st w/Barbata. Next to Dino Danelli, the flashiest sticksman,right? Did not know he was a local boy! Wendy I lived in Cliifton to-my 1st 3 years!
Roberto, yr right, he was a teenager! Tks Wendy I'll check 'em out. Hey Matt, thanks!A new puppy? awesome!
I have one Tortiose cd in a matte finish brown paper case.
10:25am YETI BOB:@Bob Brainen: The one in the plain paper is their first record, which is good, but the sound got a lot more sophisticated when Jeff Parker joined the band. I love all their records but I think "Standards" is the best. There's not a bad one though. 10:26am adamdoesit:@Matt Bruuuuuce! What a sweet face. 10:26am wendy del formaggio:@YETI BOB: Thank you for the Tortoise suggestions! I’m going to my local rekkid store this week, so I’ll poke around or order as necessary.
I saw them once at Bowery Ballroom (NYC), uh...maybe 2005? It was a fab show.
10:27am steveo:Hi Bob. Glad to hear you again. Super set. 10:27am YETI BOB:I bought that CD at the Princeton Record Exchange, when I still lived in NJ, not knowing anything about the band - something about the simplicity of the cover turned me on. Then I moved to Chicago and became a major fan, and actually I live right down the street from the studio where they recorded (no longer a studio, now an antique shop). 10:27am Matt Warwick:@wendy we believe he is a beagle/schnauzer mix. Got him from a rescue place Waggy Tails. Here’s a pic of how fuzzy he currently is:
10:28am YETI BOB:@Matt: Awwwwww! 10:29am PaulRobeson1920:Goood morning, Billie 10:29am DjLorraine:Gmorning Bob and friends 10:29am wendy del formaggio:@YETI BOB: I don’t see any puppy photos on that page. Maybe ‘cos I’m on my iphone? Waah. I wanna see the puppy!
10:31am YETI BOB:@Wendy: Here's a direct link to the pic Matt posted Tuesday. www.wfmu.org... But he just posted a newer one 10:32am DjLorraine:Brand new puppy! Cute 10:33am wendy del formaggio:@Matt W: Awwww! So snuggly and fuzzy! Bruce looks a bit like my childhood dog, Sandy. (Hmm. A Bruce song. Oh, we NJ people!) When I was 5 years old my family found Sandy as a stray so we knew nothing about her other than she was cute, small, alone, and hungry. I remember she ate all our ham. 10:34am wendy del formaggio:Thank you YETI BOB. Such a fuzzy puppy face! ❤️ 10:36am Andrew in Toronto:Good morning Bob and all other Brainiacs. 10:39am northguineahills:physicalolgical personal hygiene taken care of, now for Bob to soothe my mental hygiene.... gracias.... 10:39am Bob Brainen:Thanks Yeti. Matt, all puppies are cute, but that critter is extra cute! And yes, "Adopt, don't shop!"
Hey to DjLorraine. Hey Andrew in Toronto
10:39am YETI BOB:Fontella Bass - after having a #1 hit with "Rescue Me" - made a few really interesting appearances with the Art Ensemble of Chicago and the World Saxophone Quartet (she was married to trumpeter Lester Bowie) 10:39am mauri:yes! haden and jones! 10:42am tfunk:Wow, “Witness!” Underrated movie 10:43am YETI BOB:Martha Bass was her mother and David Peaston was her brother - a family recording there. 10:44am fred:Hello Bob and listeners from curfew land 10:47am Bob Brainen:G'morning northguineahills & tfunk & fred.
Yeah, Witness is one of my fave movies.
Wow, didn't know Peaston was her bro. Thanks Yeti.
10:47am PaulRobeson1920:Warm greetings from Woodside, Queens NY! Gotta love WFMU! wow 10:50am WilliamfromDumont:Bob, a particularly fine show today. Thanks man! 10:50am fred:I like to read conservative sites (just to get out of my bubble), and right now one has a lively debate about Sex Pistols vs. PiL, with many posters now pastors. There's hope 10:50am steveo:This is new? Really great 10:51am northguineahills:is maurice jarre related to Jean-michel jarre?
Fred! Mauri Yeti, Paul! bon semaine du fin semaine! soleil pour tous!
10:52am DjLorraine:Olafur! 10:52am fred:@ngh: Maurice was Jean-Michel's father 10:52am northguineahills:My french really sucks, I need more practice again.... (might need more practice w/ my English as well...) 10:53am northguineahills:aye, fred: new factoid for me! obrigato! 10:54am Bob Brainen:Hey PaulRobeson1920, thanks Wm.
Glad yoo dig steveo.
My French is worser than your French!
10:55am northguineahills:It's weird hearing Bob in EDT AM.... digging.... 10:56am fred:@ngh: by now you might as well give up on English and focus on rising languages like Spanish or Chinese 10:57am northguineahills:hablo espanol, pero, mi chino es muy mal.... 10:57am steveo:It may be a Physics reference.
"In 2012, scientists confirmed the detection of the long-sought Higgs boson, also known by its nickname the "God particle," at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the most powerful particle accelerator on the planet. This particle helps give mass to all elementary particles that have mass, such as electrons and protons."
10:58am Jeff:Thanks Bob for keeping us both grounded and elevated. 10:58am northguineahills:The Higgs bosson is the sub-quatum particle that makes up all sub-atomic particicles. Thanks, steveo! 10:59am PaulRobeson1920:Good Stuff! Thank you Bob and Skeltons! Peace and love always < 3 11:00am YETI BOB:It was originally "The Goddamn Particle" - look up Leon Lederman 11:00am YETI BOB:Not kidding! They made him change the title of his book. He hated "The God Particle" 11:01am YETI BOB:ngh: it does not make up other particles either. it is responsible for mass. but quarks are different
